Full Job Description

NHS Scotland is committed to encouraging equality and diversity among our workforce and eliminating unlawful discrimination. The aim is for our workforce to be truly representative and for each employee to feel respected and able to give their best. To this end, NHS Scotland welcomes applications from all sections of society.

We are seeking an individual to join our in-patient and community rehabilitation team based in Whitehills Health and Community Care Centre, Forfar, Angus. This post will involve mainly Occupational Therapy duties but may also include some Physiotherapy duties.  You will work closely with the Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy teams and within the multi-disciplinary team.  You will have the ability to liaise effectively with the multi-disciplinary and multi-agency team within the locality and will be able to work independently. Experience working with older people in a clinical setting would be advantageous.

Informal enquiries to: Lynne Houston, Occupational Therapy Clinical Lead.  Telephone .  Email:  lynne.houston@nhs.scot

Hours of work are 37 hours.

You will be required to comply with the Code of Conduct for Healthcare Support Workers in Scotland throughout your employment. 

Short-listed applicants will be contacted by email.   Please check your emails regularly, including your junk/spam folder.

NHS Scotland is reducing their full time working week from 37.5 to 37 hours per week from 1 April 2024 but with no change in pay.  This reduction will also be applied pro rata for part time staff.  This advert and any subsequent offer/contract of employment therefore reflects the new working hours.  However, as not all service areas will be able to adopt the 37 hour working week immediately from 1 April 2024, you may be required to work up to an additional 30 minutes per week for a temporary period for which you would be paid until the service you are working in changes rosters or working patterns to accommodate the new reduced working week.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Recruiting Board.
